Autumn Beauty Essentials

I write this post having downed a fair bit of coffee to keep my eyes open, so if it is entirely incoherent gobbledegoop, I can but apologise. I wanted to share a few of the products I have been enjoying of late as the weather has turned and autumn is upon us.

Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Hand & Nail Cream* - Now I'm not by any means calling myself a hand cream expert, but as a result of years of dry hands when the Great British Winter strikes, I have tried a lot. Above all that I've used over the years, this has become my favourite. It smells really strongly of lavender (which I personally love) so it's really calming, it's not oily/greasey, it feels pleasant on the skin and sinks in quickly. Not only this, but I use it in quite a large quantity, so I can't be bothered to faf about with tiny tubes the size of travel shampoos - this one will last much longer but is still a great size for handbags. What's more, Organic Surge do not test on animals, and the cherry on top? It costs less than a fiver.

Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter - Highlighters and bronzers are considered in general more summer products to bring out that 'sun kissed glow'. I love mine so much that I refuse to put it into hibernation. The Watt's Up! by Benefit is such a gorgeous champagne colour which I think works all year round, and makes a wintery rosy cheek really pop and look amazing. I prefer cream formulas for highlighters as I think they give a far more natural look, so this is perfect for me. (Yes, I lost the lid to the sponge end..oops!)

Maybelline Color Sensational in Velvet Beige - In my opinion, a really great shade for a 90s lip. I would describe this as a brown toned rose pink, a slightly darker alternative to the 'Kylie Jenner lip' look. This is such a great everyday colour and the mouisturising properties are ideal to help avoid dry chapped lips.

Maybelline Line Refine Expression Kajal in 38 Brown - Nothing too special about this product; we all know how a crayon eyeliner works, but I've been enjoying using this with a brown smokey eye for a less dramatic look in the daytime. It lines the eye with a more natural effect than black and has become an everyday product for me.
